The history and psychology of hair colour

Hello everyone! O ver a year ago I wrote a post titled  A typical brunette?   in which I mentioned common stereotypes about hair colour.    Numerous stereotypes associated with our hair colour, texture and style still exist today.   Salons Direct  created an infographic which looks deeper into the  history and psychology of hair colour .   They've taken a look at the stereotypes surrounding hair colour and have worked with a leading colour psychologist to examine these stereotypes.  They have also conducted a research and found some very interesting results supporting these preconceptions, including: • Brunettes are considered more intelligent • Blondes are considered the most attractive • Redheads were seen to be the feistiest Check it out: Via  Salons Direct   What colour is your hair?   Do you fit the stereotype of your hair colour?   Leave a comment below!
